The Grand Caravan will be transformed through light and sound into a beacon in the night. It is a lighthouse of hope and welcoming, and an instrument to light the way, seeing possibility for a new future.

Sharyn Brand

Sharyn Brand is an installation artist interested in understanding culture through a focus of sound based urban ethnography. She is particularly interested in creating unconventional environments within existing environments, natural or otherwise. Her current works investigate the manipulation of sound bite to transgress the original information, that is as much an exploration of listening as it is of sound. Sharyn’s latest work Reflection (2017), premiered at Phantasmagoria, Bogong Sound Village Festival. Recent highlights include: Collaborator on Maybe_Together’s Small Voices Louder Perth International Festival (2017) and WA Regional tour (2017), Renae Shadler & Collaborators Can You See What We See? Junction Arts Festival (2016).

With Dan Goronszy she renovated The Grand Caravan (2015) a portable purpose-built sound installation and arts venue. Together they have created a menu of immersive installations including Gutzy! Darebin Kite Festival (2017) and Castlemaine Winter Festival(2016), Destination Home La Mama (2016) and Adults only. ARTIST WEBSITE.
